Adjust to Challenging Conditions for Willamette Spring Chinook Success

By: Kyle Buschelman So far the spring Chinook season has been a challenge. Meanwhile, making adjustments to baits and how we present them have helped me put a few fish in the boat. Those putting in the work and time can catch springers. The Columbia River is closed. Therefore, most anglers will travel above Bonneville [...]

Feather River Striper Bite Excelling in High Water

By: Scott Feist It’s no secret there’s a ton of water in the Sacramento Valley on the Feather and Sacramento River, but don’t let that discourage you. There are also more stripers than we’ve had in years and that high water is going to keep them around longer than we’re used to having them. The [...]

Lake Chelan Kokanee In Full Swing

By: Brad Wagner As our cold, snowy North Central Washington winter fades to a blustery spring Lake Chelan’s kokanee fishery is heating up as fast as the air. While we have been making the cold, long boat ride up lake the fish are starting their annual migration down lake to follow the food. Fortunately, those [...]

Learn to Cure/Fish Coon Shrimp for PNW Springers

By: Terry Wiest The Springers are coming! Meanwhile, the Columbia River is high and dirty. Therefore, many anglers will be looking for smaller water alternatives. On the other hand, to approach smaller water alternative tactics need to be employed, which we’ll cover in this blog. In the Northwest we have several alternatives to the Columbia [...]

Rio Grande Bass & Walleye Biting Now!

By: Chris Shaffer When we met Kris Flores of Muddy River Catfishing for dinner in Elephant Butte Saturday night I could sense he wasn’t excited about our planned outing Sunday. He looked defeated after spending the day on Elephant Butte Reservoir without a nibble. With conditions not likely to change in the next few hours [...]

Big Splake Still Showing in Northern Ontario

By: Chris Shaffer I’d never been splake fishing. Coming from The States, splake aren’t one of the more heavily stocked species. Meanwhile, I’d always wanted to experience quality splake fishing and was fortunate to meet Rich Brochu, a Northern Ontario native who’s become a friend of the Pautzke family in recent years. Brochu offered to [...]

Last Chance for Pike in Northern Ontario

By: Chris Shaffer Northern Ontario is littered with some of the best fishing in North America. With that in mind it didn’t take much convincing for us to fly north and spend a three-day weekend targeting burbot, brook trout and splake in hopes of filming Pautzke Outdoors. With good weather on hand doing so wasn’t [...]

High Water Forcing Anglers to Run Plugs for Columbia Springers

By: Mike Ainsworth A reflection of high water and lots of snowmelt this week the Columbia River is a foot and a half above flood stage. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean you have to forgo your spring king fishing. Meanwhile, you’ll likely have to alter your techniques to be successful. The springers are going to come [...]

Kerr Lake Crappie Showing in Large Numbers

By: Chris Bullock Largely in part to not having cold weather to extended periods of time it’s been a better than average year for crappie fishing on Kerr Lake. This year, there haven’t been many days where you couldn’t catch a big mess of crappie. While I don’t think the bite will last as long [...]

Montana’s Tiber Lake Still Producing Fish Through the Ice

By: Chris Shaffer At this same time last year I was boarding a plane and film Pautzke Outdoors in Northern Montana when Kim Anthony of Ice Fishing Montana called me and told me to stay home. The ice was unsafe, if not gone, she said. Meanwhile, this year is much different. While we filmed on [...]
